G                    Bb6
Seems just yesterday you were in my arms
Gm/F#                    Gm/F                  Gm/E
And in a special way you touched my heart with all your charms
    C
And now you're gone
       G                         C
Oh and I find myself, honey, I'm all alone
G                                C
And there's no love left to take
G                        Bb6
Don't know where I fell, for you I've always cared 
Gm/F#               Gm/F              Gm/E
I did all I know to win your love and make it so
C                          G
You'd always stay but you turned away
            C
Honey, what could I say?
               G
How could you, how could you,
G
How could you do me this way?
G                                   C
'Cause I'm chained to your love and affection
G                           C
'Cause I'm chained; oh your love's my only direction
G7
Oh oh oh oh ah ah ah
 
G                          Bb6
I've got to make it right, somehow it's always wrong
Gm/F#
Somewhere down the line
Gm/F               Gm/E        C
The love I've lost I've got to find, yeah
       G
But it won't be long
                         C
I'm gonna make it right, baby
              G
And carry you tenderly back home
                                    C
'Cause I'm chained to your love and affection
G                                          C
'Cause I'm chained; every time I hear your name I tremble
G7
I tremble, oh you know, oh you know

Well, now I admit that I
C
Haven't been the perfect guy
    Am/G#
For a girl as sweet as you
       Am/G                  Am/F#  D
But my heart and soul cries, How do you?
                 A
Oh, that's all I need
                         D
Oh, gonna make it right, baby
                  A
If you just stay, stay with me
A                       D
'Cause I'm chained
A                                D
Oh I'm chained to your love and affection
A                 D
Yes I'm chained
